Tired hotel - needs a serious refresh!

One night Stop over in Rapid City
Older feel hotel as the name suggests, but we had a super comfortable room on the 4th floor ( i think recently renovated ) cosy feel to the rooms with a lovely large clean bathroom , proper glasses for water or drinks, and two easy chairs for sitting in - great normally only one! The water slide /pool very popular with families, bar/casino(4 machines?) smokey and didn't go with the hotel. No restaurant in the hotel but next door is perkins for supper or breakfast. Only negative in the room - there was no light above the section where the fridge and microwave stood., also fairly limited parking . Over all the room was very comfortable , great value for money on a deal, and quiet considering we were near an elevator,

Serves the basics but it’s just older
All staff was super friendly, this place is just old and not modern. There’s no changing spots, an older smell to the rooms and decor is just, well, old! It served the purpose for what we needed, a bed, shower and a fridge. No comp. breakfast.

Poor 2.0
Stinky should be called “ Great Gateway Kennel”
The hotel needs a major update. They should be clear that it is pet friendly. When you don’t have a pet it is not a good hotel. It smells like a pet store. The rooms are filthy but they did come and make the beds. I wanted a room higher up but the front desk attendant didn’t know how to change a room that was already assigned. We were close to the front door so it was very loud. Please leave those rooms for those who have accessibility issues. The pool was good however, more than 80% of the swimmers were locals coming to swim for free. At check in they made us wear bracelets in the pool. However, nobody monitored the pool to ensure compliance. Also, I asked one group of rowdy kids what rooms they were in and they flat out admitted they had no rooms. Great job annoying your paying guests to wear bracelets to swim and allow the neighbourhood kids to swim for free. The area is ok but down the same street you are literally in a rough part of town. I don’t recommend this place to anyone other than those with multiple pets looking for a “ pet hotel”
